Collections and Catalogue


The Georgian Papers, which include both official and private documents, are drawn from holdings at the Royal Archives and the Royal Library.

The large body of uncatalogued material held at Windsor contains more than 450,000 pages, of which only a fraction have previously been published. Most of these papers relate to George III and, to a lesser extent, George IV, although papers from the reigns of George I, George II and William IV have also been digitised and published, as have additional collections relating to other members of the Royal Family, courtiers and the Royal Household from the Georgian period.



Georgian Papers Online is a searchable catalogue containing descriptions and digitised images of material dating from the Georgian period, including personal letters, diaries, account books and records of the Royal Household. Visit What's in the catalogue for details of the collections available in Georgian Papers Online and What's new for information about new additions to the catalogue. Introductions to many of the collections can be found below.
